Axe Valley Community Choir entertains around 100 at the town hall
Colyton and Colyford Memory Café hosted a charity concert in support of Dementia Action Week – and raised £700.
Around 100 people went along to Colyton Town Hall to enjoy a repertoire of songs performed by the 48-strong Axe Valley Community Choir.
Musical Director Edward Jacobs, enthused everyone with his skilful conducting and thrilling piano accompaniment. Refreshments were on offer at the bar during the interval, and a raffle was included.
The Memory Café co-ordinator, Sue Whitell, took the opportunity to speak about the ways in which everyone can play their part to support people who are trying to live well with dementia.
